A Fence Away From Freedom

Organized as a unit, this eight-lesson overview of Japanese-Americans during WWII is full of engaging best-practice instruction. Young historians examine propaganda, connect personally to children's stories, analyze primary source documents, debrief in small groups, distinguish between opinion and fact, and complete mini-research projects. They read excerpts from Farewell to Manzanar, and finish with a formal debate. Readings and materials are noted but not included. Use all or some of it!
